“Our leadership team headed by coach Russell Domingo, captain AB de Villiers and stand-in captain Faf du Plessis deserve full credit as do every other member of our playing squad and management team.

“Congratulations also to Faf for reaching 100 ODI caps and it would have been special to achieve this milestone in front of a full house at the Wanderers.

“Compliments are also due to our fans, our sponsors, our host broadcasters SuperSport, the Gauteng Cricket Board as host and all the people who have worked tirelessly to make Pink Day such an overwhelming success year after year.
